How to Cook

First wash and inspect the dry lentils. Pop them in a pan with water or broth (use 1 1/2 cups of water/broth to 1 cup of lentils). You can add flavourings such as herbs, garlic or onions but don't use salt as this toughens them if added at the beginning of cooking. Bring to the boil, then turn down and simmer. Stir them now and again to prevent sticking to the pan. Cooking time depends on whether you want them for salads, a thick puree or turn into mush. Around 15 minutes will start to turn them into a puree, 25 minutes you’ll have mush. Cook them for around 10-15 minutes if you want to use them in a salad, you want a tender but firm texture and for them to still hold their shape. The easiest way is to check on your lentils as you cook them. Cooking times vary wildly depending on how large the pan, how cold the water and simply the size of lentils themselves. Simply have a taste at around 10 minutes and judge the cooking time accordingly.
